Why don't we have a honest City Council that will honestly say "Developer (Contractors) Lobbyists , Developer (Contractors), "donate to us and we will approve"!!!!"

It would be great if the City Council and all the other "Councils" and "Work Shops" learned a new word – NO or new phase – DISAPPROVED….

There is no sane reason for this PROBLEM except MONEY, MONEY, MONEY and not caring about the people of Mountain View or ANY of the other communities …..

Sound to me like DEVELOPMENT, DEVELOPMENT, DEVELOPMENT !!!! Gee, the CITY has messed up so much without looking back and LEARNING from the past..

Like I said ABOVE – "There is no sane reason for these PROBLEMS except MONEY, MONEY, MONEY and not caring about the people of Mountain View or ANY of the other communities….."

At only 21 µg/L, the TCE concentrations in groundwater are only a problem if you drink the groundwater. Vapor intrusion is not a concern. To those who disagree, I've got a $300,000 bridge to sell you...
